LOS RAKAS

Los Rakas is comprised of cousins Raka Rich and Raka Dun, pioneering Panamanians by way of the Bay Area on the frontier of a new Latin urban sound. Known for their fresh mix of hip-hop, plena, reggae and dancehall music; the Grammy-nominated duo represents the cutting edge of Pan-American flows. 

Taking their name from the Panamanian word “Rakataka,” a negative slur used to describe someone from the ghetto, Los Rakas have set out to inspire fellow “Rakas” by empowering them to become successful despite their circumstances. 

In 2012, Los Rakas released their EP, Raka Love, touring nationally and internationally. Their debut album on Universal Music Latino, El Negrito Dun Dun y Ricardo, released in 2014. In 2016, Los Rakas released their self-titled, second album earning them a Grammy nomination for “Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album”. Their 2019 album Manes De Negocio is best described by Remezcla as a “socially conscious trap soiree”.

As KQED states, Los Rakas are “positioning themselves as the heirs of pioneering Black Panamanian reggaetoneros such as El General and Renato.” Los Rakas are turning the current Latin hip-hop world on its head.

ANJALI ASHA

Anjali Asha, whose name translates to ‘Offering Hope’, is a Mexican and Indo-Fijian American singer/songwriter. Her unique cultural background influenced her with a wide spectrum of music growingup. Anjali began writing lyrics as soon as she learned to write and quickly discovered singing to be a passion.

At nine years old she amazed her father by singing him a song she had written. Being a music producer, Anjali convinced him to record the song for a 5th grade class project. A natural at creating melodies with an interest in various music genres continued to help her define a style all her own. Some of her biggest influences include Amy Winehouse, Fergie, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Etta James, Louis Armstrong and Frank Sinatra.

In June of 2018, Anjali was preparing to release her debut album when a car accident involving a drunk driver brought everything to a halt. Anjali’s face was crushed in, separating her cheekbones from her skull, along with a broken nose and jaw. Surgeons estimated a 2-yearminimum of recovery time and warned she may never sing again. Anjali defied doctors’ orders to rest and she soon became a “miracle” patient. Just two months into her recovery she began to work again. While waiting for upcoming surgeries, she inspired her team to get on board for a whole new project. Seven months later while still in recovery, Anjali proudly announced her new debut album titled, “CHINGONA”.

When asked about her album, Anjali said, “As a whole I want “CHINGONA” to make people feel good. It’s an upbeat album representing growth and lessons learned. I want listeners to be able to come with me, through the introspection that brought every word, and to read into the deeper meanings behindthe lyrics. That not only sums up struggles but influences a new attitude on how to process and push through them into a new chapter. My goal was to capture ambition, positivity, triumph and resilience.”

Anjali Asha aka CHINGONA -She’s unstoppable!

BIG BOYS OF REGGAE

YOUNGIN FLOE

Youngin Floe is a Nicaraguan-American artist and producer, native to the San Francisco Bay Area. Being heavily influenced by the Hyphy Movement and the rise of Reggaeton as a child, Youngin has developed a refreshing sound by mixing Spanish/English wordplay over heavy Bay Area rhythms that break the very foundation of what music is “supposed to” sound like. Although well-versed in various Hip Hop aspects and styles, Floe’s refusal to be restricted by a single genre has allowed him to develop a versatile selection of music with songs ranging from Hip Hop, Latin Trap, Dancehall, to Reggaeton.

Youngin has also had the pleasure of working with various artists like: Mistah Fab, Futuro Fuera de Orbita, X Raided, and Los Rakas, just to name a few. Youngin Floe has been credited being the first artist to authentically depict the Nicaraguan-American Lifestyle with songs like “Chavalo”, “Nica 101”, and “Nica 101 Remix”. With a successful Nicaragua tour out the way and another one planned for Mid – August 2018, Youngin’s goal of being the Nicaraguan representative of Latin American music today is within grasp.
